Metabolites of Dietary Protein and Peptides by Intestinal Microbes and their Impacts on Gut.

Abstract

Dietary protein is a vital nutrient for humans and animals, which is primarily digested into peptides and free amino acids (FAAs) in the upper gastrointestine with the help of proteases. The products are absorbed by the enterocytes and are metabolized in different organs of body. Dietary protein, peptides and FAAs that escape digestion and absorption of the… (More)
